Christmas archives

Since its creation in 2003, the Juno Beach Centre has collected archives related to the Second World War: photo albums, sketches, letters, newspapers, magazines, brochures, musical scores, menus, personal documents… This fund built up with time thanks to donations. It makes it possible to enrich the museum temporary exhibits and its educational programs. It is also a source of iconography for the museum publications.

For Christmas 2015, we are pleased to offer here a selection of archive documents which are reminders of what Christmas was like during war time.

Best wishes direct from the Juno Beach Centre’s archives! If you wish to make a donation of archives to the Juno Beach Centre, please use the link
